ConversaSpain has emerged as an organisation dedicated to promoting effective language learning through direct interaction with native speakers. It has become a benchmark in the city of Murcia, and its work has been instrumental in promoting language and cultural immersion for Spanish students.
This company collaborates with the regional education authorities of the Community of Madrid, Castilla-La Mancha, and the Region of Murcia.
It is renowned for its language assistant programme, a group of native speakers or those with exceptional proficiency in Spanish who assist students in their language learning journey. These assistants, hailing from various Spanish-speaking countries, provide an authentic language experience, sharing their linguistic and cultural knowledge with students.
Language assistants play a pivotal role in the educational process, working in tandem with Spanish teachers to provide students with practical and real opportunities to practice and enhance their fluency and oral comprehension. Their primary focus is encouraging oral communication, helping students gain confidence and proficiency in using Spanish in everyday situations.
ConversaSpain has established a close collaboration with the Instituto Hispánico de Murcia. Together, they have conducted numerous customized programs where students have had the opportunity to take Spanish classes and participate in cultural activities.
During these programs, they have attended classes taught by highly qualified Spanish teachers, allowing them to improve their grammar, vocabulary, listening comprehension, and oral expression skills. In addition to classes, they have taken part in a variety of extracurricular activities, such as visits to iconic places in Murcia, workshops, and cultural activities.
Our school organizes the immersion week in Murcia every year to give these students the opportunity to explore our beautiful region, taking advantage of the wonderful climate and other offerings here.
In addition to the daily Spanish classes, they visited, among other places, the cathedral, the local market, and the Santa Clara museum. There was also entertainment in the form of salsa and flamenco classes, culinary workshops, tapas nights, and treasure hunts!
But wait, what would a trip to Spain be without trying some truly local food? Churros with chocolate, local tapas, and, finally, a visit to the Cathedral tower, the city’s highest point, convinced our guests that it’s worth staying here a bit longer.
ConversaSpain and the Instituto Hispánico de Murcia share a common vision of promoting excellence in teaching Spanish as a foreign language. Both organizations strive to offer high-quality programs and meaningful learning experiences for international students looking to enhance their Spanish proficiency.
